Paula Silva Villanueva, Resilience Monitor

The conference brings together evaluation professionals, academics, policymakers and other stakeholders from developed and developing countries with the purpose of fostering the exchange of ideas and methods to evaluate climate change and sustainable development.

The conference is a follow-up to the first international conference which was held in Alexandria, Egypt, in 2008. Over 200 attendees participated in that conference which resulted in creation of the Climate-Eval community of practice, and the publication of the authoritative book, ”Evaluating Climate Change and Development”, that was the first one focusing on the topic.
